Sunday Blessing: A prayer to end the day

In the Evening pg 34 of “A book of Prayer” by William Barclay

Eternal and everblessed God, we give Thee thanks, as this day comes to an end, for those who mean so much to us, and without whom life could never be the same.

We thank Thee for those to whom we can go at any time,
and never feel a nuisance.

We thank Thee for those to whom we can go when we are tired, knowing that they have, for weary feet, the gift of rest.

We thank Thee for those with whom we can talk, and keep nothing back, knowing that they will not laugh at our dreams or mock our failures.

We thank Thee for those in whose presence it is easier to be good.

We thank Thee for those in whose company Joys are doubly dear, and sorrow’s bitterness is soothed.

We thank Thee for those who by their warning, their counsel, and their rebuke have kept us from mistakes we might have made, and sins we might have committed.

And above all we thank Thee for Jesus, the pattern of our lives, the Lord of our hearts, and the saviour of our souls.

Accept this our thanksgiving, and grant us tonight a good nights rest: through Jesus Christ our lord.
Amen.
